Nervous System II: Divisions of the Nervous System
This chapter continues the study of the nervous
system. It includes the structure and function of the central nervous system
and its coverings (objectives 1-8), the structure and function of the peripheral
nervous system (objectives 9-13), and the structure and function of the autonomic
nervous system (objectives 14-17).
A knowledge of the component parts of the nervous
system is essential to understanding the effects of injury on the body.
